2011 the "year of decisions for biofuels"

April 20, 2011 |

In Washington, Biofuels Digest editor Jim Lane , described 2010-11 as “a vintage year for advanced biofuels, with the industry growing fast and IPO markets re-opening,” but said that in 2011-12 “the stakes are higher, the work tougher, the rewards greater.”

In remarks at the Advanced Biofuels Leadership Conference, he described 2011 as “the year of decisions” in biofuels, and said that companies enjoying the most success in the current market were focused intensely on their co-product strategies, and their finance and commercialization activities, “matching breakthroughs in R&D with breakthroughs in strategy.”

He observed that advanced biofuels companies gaining traction in the marketplace were doing more  than defining themselves as multi-feedstock, multi-product biorefineries, but proving out a “sustainable, affordable, reliable, available feedstock” supply strategy, and developing offtake contracts that locked in sustainable margins.

More than 450 advanced biofuels leaders, including 120 C-level executives, are attending ABLC this week in Washington, and 40 of the “50 Hottest Companies in Bioenergy”.
